Hello, Friday! It’s an exciting day over at Fringe Supply Co. — we’ve got a new Stowe Bag Kit from our friends at Verb, a kit for bags so pretty that photos can’t even convey the hand-loomed khadi, naturally dyed, sashiko-stitched gorgeousness. The kit is available now in three different color/fabric combos, and we do have limited quantities of them — it would make a beautiful gift either in either kit or bag form. And it just so happens Jen at Grainline is hosting a Stowe sewalong on her blog in December!
BUT WAIT, there’s more! We’ll also have this week’s Town Bag update at 9am CT. That one’s a little tricky due to overwhelming demand, so take a second to read the notes on how it will work. And if you don’t get lucky this morning, we will have more next week! We’re doing all we can to catch up with demand, and are grateful for your patience and determination in the meantime.
We also passed the six-year mark this week, and I marked the occasion by updating our About page, if you’re new-ish here or would like to know more about the history and mission of Fringe. We’ve come a long way these past few years! And I’m so eternally grateful for your support.
Now how ’bout a little Elsewhere:
– This story of a quest to make an American flannel literally brought tears to my eyes (thank you, Sarah!)
– And back to awesome
– A holiday garland I can get behind
– I’m officially not alone in my love of the dickey as all-day wear
– This week in Podcasts I’d Like Time To Listen To: Thread & Ladle
– Same goes for Gretchen Rubin on Love to Sew!
– The “Wiksten Kimono Jacket” is now the “Wiksten Haori” — cheers to Jenny for undertaking that (see also: Jamie & The Jones) and to @little_kotos_closet who was instrumental in both name changes
– Do you have a charitable knitting/crochet project? You might be able to win yarn for it
– Currently loving hats with a bit of mohair mixed in: exhibit A and exhibit B
Have a cozy weekend, everyone!
